ECAC Hockey is one of the six conferences that compete in NCAA Division I ice hockey. Despite its name, it is not sponsored by the Eastern College Athletic Conference, a consortium of over 300 colleges in the eastern United Statesmarker. The name derives from the league's former direct association with the ECAC, which ended in 2004.

History

The ECAC Hockey League was founded in 1962. In June 1983, concerns that the Ivy League schools were potentially leaving the conference and disagreements over schedule length versus academics caused Boston Universitymarker, Boston Collegemarker, Providencemarker, Northeasternmarker and New Hampshiremarker to decide to leave the ECAC to form what would become Hockey East, which began play in 1984-1985 season. By that fall, Mainemarker also departed the ECAC for the new conference. This left the ECAC with twelve teams (Armymarker, Brown, Clarkson, Colgate, Cornell, Darmouth, Harvard, Princeton, RPI, St. Lawrence, Vermontmarker, Yale). Army would stay in the conference until the end of the 1990-1991 season, at which point they became independent (they now play in Atlantic Hockey) and were replaced by Union Collegemarker. Vermont left the ECAC for Hockey East at the end of the 2004-2005 season, and were replaced in the conference by Quinnipiacmarker.

As of the 2006-07 season, all ECAC schools participate with men's and women's teams, making ECAC Hockey the only Division I hockey conference with a full complement of teams for both sexes.

Six of the members of ECAC Hockey are also members of the Ivy League, and all of the Ivy universities with Division I ice hockey programs are also members of ECAC Hockey. Neither the University of Pennsylvaniamarker nor Columbia University have intercollegiate ice hockey programs. UPenn supported an intercollegiate varsity hockey program in the past and was an ECAC Hockey member from 1966 to 1978 before the team was disbanded. The Ivy school that has the best regular season record against other Ivy opponents is crowned the Ivy League ice hockey champion. Yale won the 2009 Ivy League ice hockey championship. The Ivy League schools require their teams to play seasons that are about three weeks shorter than those of the other schools in the league. Thus, they enter the league schedule with fewer non-conference warm-up games, though Harvard competes in the annual Beanpot Tournament and Cornell hosts a holiday tournament in Esteromarker, Floridamarker.

The Cleary Cup, named for former Harvard player and coach Bill Cleary, is awarded to the regular season champion (the team with the best in-conference record). At present, this team is given the top seed in the ECAC conference tournament (including the first round bye given to the top four seeded teams), but is not given any special consideration in the NCAA tournament.

Brown's website characterizes it as "the Baptist answer to Congregationalist Yale and Harvard; Presbyterian Princeton; and Episcopalian Penn and Columbia," but adds that at the time it was "the only one that welcomed students of all religious persuasions."[1] Brown's charter stated that "into this liberal and catholic institution shall never be admitted any religious tests, but on the contrary, all the members hereof shall forever enjoy full, free, absolute, and uninterrupted liberty of conscience." The charter called for twenty-two of the thirty-six trustees to be Baptists, but required that the remainder be comprised of "five Friends, four Congregationalists, and five Episcopalians"[2]
